Beautiful boutique hotel in Kalo Livadi
Posted May 17, 2016
Archipelagos is a wonderful place to stay located on the south-east of the island away from the town and the party beaches so is the perfect place to rest and relax.
The hotel belongs to the small luxury hotel chain and the staff, food and location were all fantastic!
On arrival you are greeted by the very friendly staff and an extremely tasty and refreshing beverage before being shown to your room.
The rooms have their own private terrace and we were lucky enough to have a room at the top of the hotel complex so the views were brilliant. The room also gets cleaned twice a day which was a surprise! Attention to detail here is superb the staff really go above and beyond.
The Buffett style breakfast, served between 8-11am, is delicious and hosts a range of food and local dishes, I'm a vegetarian myself and I was always spoilt for choice.
We hired a quad bike via the hotel receptionist for a couple of days to explore the island which I highly recommend doing if you're not hiring a car. It costs €25 per day (plus €10 insurance cover-optional, and we filled the petrol tank up for €10) so it was very reasonable.
The hotel also provided us with a free shuttle bus into Mykonos town, which ran twice daily, the perfect opportunity to explore the amazing town.
The hotel is also a short 5/10min walk away from the Kalo Livadi and Kalafatis beaches, however we found the better beaches are located on the south coast (quad bike hire is essential). There is also a mini market in Kalafatis.
